TROFEO Motorsport has opted for consistency for a return bid for class honours at the 2018 Bathurst 12 Hour. 

The Jim Manolios-led team has confirmed the return of their Lamborghini Hurracan GT3 to the February event, with the same driving squad that helped the team secure 10th outright and third in the ‘Am’ class in 2017.

As the reigning Formula E champion, Lucas di Grassi is not bothered by job security.

Perhaps he should be threatened by the looming rise of self-driving cars and autonomous technology on the road and track.

But the champion driver and Roborace chief executive is taking a different approach, championing the cause of driverless race cars on track at the opening round of the 2017-18 Formula E championship in Hong Kong this weekend.

Di Grassi's skills have been used to calibrate the autonomous racers, effectively teaching them the basic art of driving before artificial intelligence takes it to another level.

Motorsport: Jamie Whincup wins record seventh Supercars title - The Sydney Morning Herald

Jamie Whincup has won an unprecedented seventh Supercars title after Scott McLaughlin's championship dream turned to ruin during an epic finale in Newcastle.

The Holden superstar celebrated just his fourth win of the season as McLaughlin squandered a 78-point series lead and pole position with three penalties during yesterday's 250-kilometre race.

McLaughlin kept on fighting and got into a title-winning position, then was hit with a third penalty for what appeared to be a telling pass with three laps to go, with the 25-second penalty confirming Whincup's title by 21 points.

McLaughlin's flying start from pole position wasn't a portent of things to come. He was penalised for speeding on his first entry to pit lane early in the race.

Motor racing-F1 walking a tightrope in America, says Ferrari boss - SBS

MILAN (Reuters) - Formula One is walking a tightrope as new owners Liberty Media plan to grow the sport in America, Ferrari chairman Sergio Marchionne has warned.

Marchionne, who is also chief executive of Fiat Chrysler, recognised there was a big opportunity to win new audiences in the United States but said the sport's heritage had to be respected.

U.S.-based Liberty, who took over the sport in January, are planning to add at least one North American race to the calendar after 2018 and want to build up the show around grand prix weekends.

"I think it’s fair to say that (F1 chairman) Chase (Carey) and I agree we need space in the United States," Marchionne told reporters at a presentation on Saturday of Alfa Romeo's new partnership with the Swiss Sauber team.

Carey also attended the event.

"I think there is an opportunity here, if we do the things right, to make this a relevant...

Motor racing - Red Bull junior driver Ticktum wins McLaren F1 test - SBS

LONDON (Reuters) - Red Bull junior driver Dan Ticktum put McLaren in an awkward position on Sunday after winning a coveted award that includes a Formula One test drive and simulator role with the Woking-based team.

Macau Formula Three Grand Prix winner Ticktum, 18, beat three other young Britons to win the McLaren Autosport BRDC Award.

Previous winners include 2009 Formula One world champion Jenson Button and three times Indianapolis 500 winner Dario Franchitti.

Last year's winner Lando Norris is now the McLaren Formula One reserve driver.

Ticktum, however, has been contracted to rivals Red Bull since the start of the year and has been in that team's simulator already.

McLaren sources told Reuters the prize would be honoured, with Ticktum probably getting to drive a 2013 Formula One car, but a meaningful factory simulator role with them was out of the question.
